eBay Optional listing upgrade fees from 30th March 2017

No primary category set

eBay’s listing enhancements will cost you more from the end of the month, so it’s time to assess what works for you and what doesn’t.

On the upside, if you have a Featured or Anchor shop subscription, from the 1st of April you’ll have a £10 or £20 credit to use on listing enhancements which could mitigate the increase in prices.

As an example, if you are a heavy user of Subtitles your cost per listing is about to increase by 13p. The £10 with a featured shop will give you subtitles on 77 listings and your net fee increase will be 1p. (77 x 13p = £10.01). With an Anchor shop, you can use 154 subtitles with a fee increase of 2p (154 x 13p = £20.02).

If you previously haven’t used listing enhancements but have a Featured or Anchor shop, test using the features to find out if they increase your sales velocity or selling price. If you use the auction-style format you might for instance try adding a Buy It now to 20 (Featured) or 40 (Anchor) listings per month.
